About us

The core focus of HISPMalawi is to support the Government of Malawi, through the Ministry of Health and Population, with the strengthening of health information systems. HISP started with DHIS 2 as the main output, working with Government. DHIS 2 is developed and implemented through a network of partners (the HISP network), including universities, ministries of health, international agencies. However HISP plans to extend its operations into patient level systems at facility and community levels. The various members of the network play different roles, ranging from developing human capacity at different levels, managing software development, coordinating educational linkages and helping create strong information cultures within national health services. The strategic focus of HISP Malawi is on information systems to support the "Continuum of Care" starting from the community to the national levels.
